Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP)
Commonwealth supported places are available for Swinburne Online degrees. If you're eligible:
- the Australian government contributes to the cost of your course
- you pay the remainder of your fees (known as a student contribution), and
- you may be eligible for HECS-HELP assistance to pay your student contribution.
HECS-HELP is a government loan available to eligible students enrolled in Commonwealth supported places, and covers all or part of your student contribution.
If you're eligible for a HECS-HELP loan, you don't need to pay for your course upfront. Instead, the Australian government will pay the loan amount to Swinburne Online on your behalf.
